Can You Read These Rxs?

AUGUST 02, 2010

Rx 1

When Matthew Harrick, RPh, received this prescription at TOPS Pharmacy in Erie, Pennsylvania, he knew he would need help. He made a call to the physician’s office, where a nurse was able to shed light on the scribbled prescription.



Rx 2

This prescription was presented to Jane Atkisson, CPhT, the lead technician at CVS Pharmacy in Glen Allen, Virginia. She could not decipher the drug name on her own and eventually had to check with the prescriber for clarification.
